I read a great post on Building a Better BLT and decided I had to try my hand at grilling some tomatoes. The family was very glad I gave this a try.
I started with some regular old grocery store tomatoes, sliced them up, brushed with olive oil and hit them with salt and pepper.
I added a slice of Muenster cheese and grilled these over direct heat for about 5-10 minutes. I was using a GrillGrate panel which really makes direct heat grilling easy.
They turned out beautiful and really concentrated the tomato flavor. This one went onto a steak sandwich. I am eating a lot of those these days 🙂
I grilled up another batch without cheese. I was very surprised that I could put grill marks on a tomato!
I am very glad to have this trick in my grilling arsenal. It makes me happy to learn new things.
